Something New

Thursday, August 2, 2012 130 0

Top: J.Crew. Skirt: Club Monaco. Handbag: J.Crew. Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Belt: BCBG. Necklace: ASOS. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene. Bracelets: Kate Spade, Henri Bendel, J.Crew, BCBG, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Sometimes all it takes is a new accessory added to an outfit of older pieces to make you feel like you’re wearing a brand new look.  Each of the items I’m wearing is at least 3 years old, except for my new J.Crew Edie handbag I picked up in July (already worn in the post Ladies Who Lunch).  I just can’t stop talking about this bag!  I am madly in love with its surprisingly versatile lovely lavender colour, and it’s classic chic shape.  Barring any unfortunate ice cream spills (because I eat ice cream a lot), this purse will be in my collection for many, many years to come.

    I love every bit of this outfit! It’s so light and breezy. I ruin most of my super nice bags with ink pens sadly. I am the worst about not recapping!

    • Jenny
      August 2, 2012

      Thanks so much Katie! YES, I’m so terrified to put pens in my purse for exactly that reason!

    Oooh I’ve been eyeing the Edie handbag, but it’s just not practical for me right now since (a) I already bought a Marc Jacobs bag a couple months ago, and (b) I’ll be going back to school in a couple weeks and then I just throw everything in a big tote.

    But one day…one day…

      Agreed, this bag would not have been practically when I was in school either. Thanks Sarah!

      August 2, 2012

      Thanks Ani! I use the Canon Rebel T2i with 50mm lens. It’s really simple to use and takes wonderful photos. My Man and I really have no idea how to take photos. The camera seems to just do it on it’s own. I just learned how to change the exposure to account for sun or shade, and that seems to really do the trick.
